  • Crossing the bridge with the stunnig view was amazing. Also looking down to the valley whre the river Elbe is.  more »
  • Wonderful views mean you need some energy to get to the top. Mostly well signposted. Interesting rock formations and nice to be walking through nature.  more »
  • Awesome area for extended hikes and day hikes. Multiple options to spend the night or possible to just camp outside (in certain areas). As picturesque as the postcards indicate. The trails are well indicated so it is difficult to get lost. If course the major routes can be quite busy but with a little bit of looking around it's easy to find secluded spots.
  • I totally fell in love with this place. Amazing views, pure air and nice hiking trails. It's just perfect for an escape from the city. I absolutely recommend spending a couple of days hiking around.
